Green Business Practices

Sustainability and environmental accountability are ongoing responsibilities that we are always working on.

Telecommuting & Green Office Spaces

Our team of telecommuting staff means zero workplace commuting and less resources are required for our business operations. Our home-based offices fully recycle and benefit from a mix of conservation practices such as: paperless recordkeeping and filing systems, energy-efficient appliances and fixtures, eco-friendly cleaning products, composting, rain barrels, vegetable gardens, and wildlife habitat/biodiversity plantings. This modern and sustainable business philosophy provides us with more time and energy to focus on producing our best work.

Green Events

Planning an event? We can create and deliver a fully-customized zero waste event or workshop for you with locally-sourced, farm-fresh and organic catering and reusable tableware.

Web Hosting
